lol, I just wondered because some people don't have symptoms.

I'd guess I didn't have it because I've had no cold , symptoms or anything for a couple years.

If you donate blood to the red cross they will test it for you. Doesn't cost anything other than some time and a pint or so of blood.

My wife and I have both donated blood and the blood center tested us for the COVID antibodies. In January, we both tested negative. When we gave blood in early March, we both tested positive for the antibodies. The only symptoms that either of us really had was a slight cough, dull headache and I lost my sense of smell for a short time.


I think this COVID stuff has been around for way longer than we know of too. There are some people that have lost all their "Common Sense" and many never seem to regain it either. grin

There have been a bunch of scientific studies on the Spanish Flu using people that were alive during that time. The study showed that those alive through that time and alive today have antibodies from that flu.

I don't think that it is advantageous to some to admit that antibodies will be with us for a long time! JMO

I had the Hong Kong flu in either 1968 or 69. My wife got the covid 19 and had to be treated for pneumonia but I didn't get the covid. I think I might just have antibodies from the Hong Kong but there is no testing I can get to prove it.

I've been on my soap box yelling at anyone who will listen (that would be nobody) that what Guvnors ought to be doing is random antibody tests........been saying that since at least June of last year. Once a week, do a random test of 100 folks walking into Walmart somewhere.

What they are doing instead is flying blind.......making up rules as they go along cause they have no clue where they stand. What matters is herd immunity........and they can monitor that by using antibody tests. Works like a gas gauge in reverse.

Once the majority of the herd has crossed.......let the big dog eat.

Thank you for sharing. I had Covid at the beginning of the month. My symptoms were very mild.

The health department here on the island likes to make up their own rules and "truths" about Covid. The hospital here told me I would only have the antibodies for 90 days. I'm moving to Texas soon. I might look at getting an antibody test down there.

Dylan,
It really makes you wonder about what ever else that "hospital" knows or doesn't know. Anyone with a computer can find credible sources that say the antibodies last at least from 5-9 months and "quite possibly much longer". That "90 day" information is about 4 months out of date. They obviously aren't keeping up to date on the latest information.
Harold has warned me about that place.
